This year, we will continue to grow our competition with more industry support opening up more opportunities for our winners. Details of our re-launched competition will be revealed soon.

“I’m delighted to be announcing these excellent leaders as Australian jurors at the world’s pre-eminent creative advertising festival. The cross-section of talent selected demonstrates the quality of creative leaders our country has.”
